Prog-metal outfit Periphery have made new album Juggernaut: Omega available to stream. It’s the second part of a twin concept release — the first being Juggernaut: Alpha — and the follow-up to 2012’s Periphery II: This Time It’s Personal.
The story follows a tale of birth and re-birth, and features original artwork from graphic novelist Justin Randall.
“Although the albums are split in two physically, the story is only complete when the albums are digested consecutively,” says drummer Matt Halpern. “This allows the listener to recognise and hear the lyrical and musical overlapping themes, foreshadowing, and connected ideas.”
The albums are currently available to pre-order in a variety of bundles. Those who order via iTunes receive the previously released tracks immediately. Periphery play a trio of UK dates with Devin Townsend in March, before headlining their own London show.
